Americans Are Bullish On Their Local Housing Market

Americans have record confidence in the value of their homes and are more convinced than they have been in years that it’s a good market for home sellers.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 53% of American Adults believe, generally speaking, that this is a good time for someone in their area to be selling a home. The previous high was 44% in June 2014. Just 17% don’t think it’s a good time to sell locally, while 29% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
